  • Creative Action and the Otis Community Radio class present weekly broadcasts each Monday.

     

    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

    A two-person exhibition of recent large-scale video installations from Los Angeles-based artists Jesse Fleming and Pat O’Neill. Each artist raises questions in his work about the self in relation to others, collective norms, and the built environment.

Continuing Education Course



Logos, Symbols & Letterforms (blended course)


This professionally oriented course focuses on what might be considered the essence of visual communications -- the symbol. Through weekly slide lectures and assignments, students explore a wide variety of considerations involved in developing effective iconography, from reductive corporate logos to more complex logotypes. This course covers such areas as elements of a successful logo, design stationery systems, selecting identity colors, and creating customized letterforms and fonts for logotype or title use. Students can produce their assignments using their own computer or by traditional methods discussed in class. This course is presented in a ten-week blended format including two face-to-face meetings, week 6 and week 10, and eight online meetings. All face-to-face class meetings are held at Otis College. The course’s online modules can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.

Material will be uploaded on Sunday evenings 11:59pm (beginning 2/5/17). Login information will be emailed following student's registration. Enrollment deadline: Monday, 2/6.
